Wild Hibiscus Flowers in Syrup

The Wild Hibiscus Flowers in syrup are a new product that just came into the store this week… just a little too late for Valentines Day, but I had to feature it as it is so cool!

You can use the Hibiscus flowers to garnish any appetizer or feature it with goat cheese as I did and it is so tasty!  It also goes really well in salads, desserts and most especially… in cocktails.  The recipe below features champagne and would make a nice Anniversary toast, a Honeymoon toast or a Wedding toast!

Available in a jar of 11 flowers for $12.00Cdn or 50 flowers for $48.00Cdn.

Cheers!

 

Wild Hibiscus Royale
